I’m adding:

When something bothered me, I didn’t talk with anyone about it. I thought it over all by myself, came to a conclusion, and took action alone. Not that I really felt lonely. I thought that’s just the way things are. Human beings, in the final analysis, have to survive on their own.
—Sputnik Sweetheart (Haruki Murakami)

WELCOME TO my ”my followers are totally the best and they deserve this even though I’m ridiculously broke right now” - GIVEAWAAAAY

… and every word of this very catchy title is true.

This might be the giveaway with the most jacked up banner of all time, but ITS MADE WITH LOVE OKAY

The best things aren’t perfectly constructed. They aren’t illusions. They aren’t larger than life. They are life.

Hi Everyone!So i’ve always wanted to do a giveaway thing as a thank you to all my followers who put up with my rambling reviews and over-the-top excitement over certain authors (I’m looking at you Sarah J. Maas), but i’ve never *really* been able to justify it until now.
How this is going to work is if you are selected to win you can choose from one of the books pictured above (Unless you really hate all of them, then you can pick another one of equal or lesser value but that defeats the purpose) and i will read along with you!  That way not only are you getting a free book, but we can also discuss it as we read which will be hella fun.
There are a few rules to make sure this is fair on everyone and that it runs smoothly, so bare with me:
you need to be following me. I know this is annoying, i’m sorry! (I will be checking)
reblog this post to be considered. There is no limit to reblogs, the more you reblog the more chance you have at winning
likes don’t count
this giveaway is open internationally (to all the countries Book depository ships to)
you must be willing to give me your address so you can get the book
the winner will be chosen using a random generator
your ask box must be open, if it’s not then i’ll be picking another winner
if you are chosen and do not respond within 48 hours I will have to pass the prize onto someone else.
NO GIVEAWAY BLOGS ALLOWED. This isn’t fair on others who enter. 
giveaway ends on September 29th
any questions, just ask me here
Good Luck!

True happiness lies in the pursuit of your goal, achievement in your chosen field. This must always remain primary. Whenever money becomes primary, you are on treacherous ground.

THIS IS A GIF
THE CAREER DISTRICTS: District 1, District 2, and District 4 tend to be the Career districts, although other tributes are allowed to join if they show exceptional skill. These districts are richer and have more supplies than other districts, giving a huge advantage to their tributes and allowing them to prepare and train. Katniss once pointed out a common weakness of the Careers: the Careers couldn’t handle lack of food. Another weakness, which sometimes leads to their downfall, is their arrogance which is explained by Haymitch in the film.
